I had no idea about the pandemic we were to come across, that have changed a little bit these trends. Let’s check about them:
This year we have seen the commercial deployment of this network in several countries. Here in Spain, the telcos claim they have launched the first version of this kind of network, but it is still far away from the promises on its capabilities. Maybe it is because the first devices have started to be launched in the middle of this year, and we mainly count on smartphones. In the IoT field, we are really at the very beginning.
China and US commercial war on this topic is at its peak.
Besides this is a buzz word every new project should claim to be working on it. We are seeing a big trend in automatizing processes, great advances on NLP with gpt3.
This year finally Tesla Motors have launched its FSD autopilot in beta, so we just need to adapt the regulation to boost this kind of technology and prevent several traffic accidents.
Let’s have a look at this 101 on Computer vision. So we can see it is on the base of the main advances that will mould the world we are living at.
Despite Tesla Motors has announced that they will produce their own batteries, this won’t occur at larger scale until 2022. So we can consider this a mistake on the prediction since there are not any relevant advance on this field.
Some trends that I didn’t spot were DeFi, and all the hype is with the blockchain technology at this end of the year (with the launch of Ethereum 2.0). And of course the big raise on the Healthtech ecosystem
This is just me thinking out loud, what do you think? is there any relevant trend that I have missed? Which will be the trends for 2021?
